CCEA approves road connectivity project for LWE affected areas

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) has approved centrally sponsored road connectivity project for Left Wing Extremism (LWE) affected areas to improve rural road connectivity. The project aims to provide connectivity with culverts and cross drainage structures in 44 worst left wing affected and adjoining districts. It is critical from security and communication point of view. It will be implemented under Prime Minister Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY). The fund sharing pattern will be the same as PMGSY in the ratio of 60:40 between the Centre and the states except for the eight North Eastern states and Jammu and Kashmir, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh for which the ratio is 90:10.
